This report summarises main concepts on the literature of storytelling, tactile comfort and its impact on young children, with a focus on alleviating anxiety at the preschool and lower primary school level. Through quantitative and qualitative methods administered to children aged 5 to 12 years of age, including parental feedback, findings were analysed to create a design outcome that can contribute to the current studies related to: (a) facilitating the treatment of childhood anxieties in cognitive behavioural therapy, (b) healthy emotional regulation and in (c) promoting children’s social wellbeing in general. It concludes with limitations and implications for further research in this field.
